Isaiah 6:8 ESV And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, 'whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "here am I send me."
John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy spirit whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to to you.
In this time of living through a Pandemic called COVID-19, and being basically house bound how are you using your time? Are you still available to God or are you using your abilities to do all kinds of things that perhaps have no eternal value at all, just to fill in time.
I posted a while ago about It's a new and living way and also about the New Wine. God is definitely doing a new thing and we need to be aware of it. We need to prepare for the New Wine. New Wine needs a new wine skin, guess what? we are the wine skin.
Lets us then use our time of isolation wisely and make ourselves available to God and give Him permission to create the New Wine skin is us. We have to first surrender the old wine skin to Him before we can be made ready for the new wine.
Question to self: What is there in my life that I have to lay down in order to receive the new? Are there things in my life that I have to surrender, ministries, habits etc. etc.
This season of isolation will pass and when it does, I want to be ready for the new. I want to be able to say "here I am Lord send, (use) me.
Prayer: Father thank you that you are doing a new thing. Thank you that you are preparing me for the New Wine. Lord reveal to me what the old is, so I can lay it down. Father thank you that you are not interested in my abilities, but you are looking for my availability and my obedience. Lord help me to be obedient and available. AMEN
